Taking the big step!
I've finally done it and moved on.
The time has come for me to start using After Effects for doing all the compositing work in my future movies.
I don't know why I did not use it before, but now the time felt correct. Maybe, because there is something big being on the horizon :)
AE is absolutely amazing compared to Vegas in terms of tools and all that jazz. AE loves to crash a lot, but it also just does some things so amazingly better than Vegas. No need to turn back at all!

I started to work on a music video. It's gonna be very surrealistic and all, so I can go crazy with all the effect hoodoo within AE.
The tutorials at Video Copilot are very useful, but I really do not want to copy the things shown on the tutorials 1:1. In my case that might not be entirely possible as there is a LOT to learn.
This current work-in-progress movie is good "target practice" for Unpuntable 2 and something still unannounced.
I've completed the first minute of this video and it is nothing but composited scenes of WoW / Unreal Tournament 2004 + 3 footage. It has taken long :)
The next set of screenshots will be made available to you when the next minute is done.
